Introduction to Corporate Tax in the UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has long been recognized for its business-friendly environment and favorable tax policies, which notably included the absence of a corporate tax. However, as part of its commitment to global tax standards and the need to diversify revenue sources, the UAE has undergone significant tax reforms in recent years, leading to the introduction of corporate taxation. This pivotal shift in the country’s fiscal policies reflects the UAE’s progressive approach toward building a sustainable and diverse economy.

Previously, the absence of corporate tax and various incentives played a pivotal role in attracting foreign investment and fostering economic growth in the region. However, to align with international efforts to combat tax avoidance and promote fair taxation, the UAE made the decision to implement corporate taxation.

On 9th December 2022, the UAE Ministry of Finance (MoF) issued the new Decree-Law No. 47 of 2022, known as the Federal Corporate Tax (CT). This legislation introduced a comprehensive framework for corporate taxation in the UAE, marking a significant milestone in the country’s tax landscape.

Effective from 1st June 2023, the corporate tax applies to all financial years commencing on or after that date and covers all Emirates of the UAE. It is applicable to all business and commercial activities conducted within the country. Companies operating in the UAE must fulfill their corporate tax requirements and meet their obligations and responsibilities.

It is important to note that the UAE CT focuses specifically on business and commercial income and does not apply to employment income or non-business income earned by individuals. This ensures that taxation is targeted at corporate profits rather than personal earnings.

Understanding the new Federal Corporate Tax and ensuring compliance with its rules is crucial for companies conducting business in the UAE.
